Christina Freundlich first garnered national media attention when she took a selfie in front of the deadly East Village explosion site in New York City that killed two people in March.

But now, with her Instagram still set to private, Freundlich has a new job — one with the Democratic National Committee.

On Monday, the DNC released a statement regarding 2016 Republican hopeful Jeb Bush's economic polices written by Freundlich, a "DNC spokesperson."

“When it comes to talking about the state of the economy, Jeb Bush can’t stop digging up the failed Republican ideas that just won’t die," Freundlich wrote. "His economic policies outline the same Republican failed policies of the past — signing massive tax breaks that favor the wealthy over the middle class, gutting investments in health care and job training while income inequality in Florida exploded."

Her Twitter bio claims she is the "Southern Regional Press Secretary" for the DNC.

The new gig with the DNC isn't Freundlich's first foray into liberal politics. She previously worked as a communications director for the Iowa Democratic Party and for Mayors Against Illegal Guns as well as the Obama campaign.

Freundlich, who the New York Post originally outed as one of the "self-absorbed jerks [who] are treating the East Village gas explosion site like a tourist attraction," did apologize after posting the photo of her smiling and holding up a peace sign.

"It was inconsiderate to those hurt in the crash and to the city of New York," Freundlich said in an email to the Des Moines Register. "What happened last week in the East Village is not to be taken lightly and I regret my course of action."
